    Default Desperately need help please! 2014 SuperSix Evo Hi-Mod Team vs. 2018 Synapse Carbon

    I am trying to decide between a used 2014 SuperSix Evo Hi-Mod Team bike and the new 2018 Synapse Carbon Disc 105 bike.

    I have test rode both, and I have found that the brand new 2018 Synapse Carbon Disc 105 feels at least twice as heavy as the 2014 SuperSix Evo Hi-Mod. I am surprised at how much more heavier the new 2018 Synapse is, as it's a brand new-bike with decent components? I previously rode a CAAD10 (got hit by a car several months ago though), and loved it to death.

    Bottom line: Which would you recommend, and why? Thank you very much.

    Theyíre both fine bikes. I would expect the Synapse to be heavier since it has disc brakes but not 2x heavy.

    The Super Six is a great race bike. Definitely should be faster and more aggressive than the Synapse.

    It really comes down to how you feel on each one of them. Iíve tested a bunch of really great bikes but Iíve always opted for the ones that just felt right to ride for me.

    I know that doesnít truly answer your question but the one best able to decide what feels best is you. Good luck and canít wait to see you post pix of your new ride!

    Those are two fairly different bikes to cross shop. You're comparing a $10k (new) SRAM Red22 race bike to a entry-to-mid level endurance road bike. If you're used to a CAAD10, you're going to find the fit to be nearly identical to the SuperSix, only stiffer and lighter.
